International Conference "Days on Diffraction"


Vasilii N. Babich

The conference is the most representative forum concerning the up-dated state-of-the-art in theory of diffraction and wave propagation, related mathematical topics, and, to some extent, relevant questions of techniques. The participants represent all parts of the world.The traditional conference topics are the following: mathematical problems of diffraction and wave propagation theory, boundary-value contact problems of acoustics and electrodynamics, propagation of waves in inhomogeneous, stochastic, and composite media, wave phenomena in metamaterials and nanostructures, theory of waveguides and resonators, numerical methods, nonlinear waves. During the past few years several new topics were added, namely: water waves, homogenization, spectral theory of operators, wavelet analysis.
